Cavite Governor Jonvic Remulla on Wednesday announced that cockfighting is still prohibited in the province despite the easing of age restrictions of those allowed to go out.
In a Facebook post, Remulla issued several changes in Cavite’s guidelines amid the community quarantine implementation.
“COCKFIGHTING IS NOT PERMITTED WITHIN CAVITE. Ang sabungan ay “super spreader” and COVID-19 hotspot. Kaya’t pag-aaralan muna namin ng maigi ang paggawa ng bagong patakaran bago tayo pumayag dito. Maliban doon, ay wala sa konsensya ko na ang simbahan ay 50% lang ang puede ngunit ang sabungan ay walang limit,” Remulla said.
He also asked the public to give the government time to study and develop a comprehensive guideline for cockfighting venues.
Meanwhile, the curfew hours in Cavite remains from 9 pm to 4 am.
“We are not out of the woods yet. Tag-ulan pa ngayon at mas mabilis ang pagkalat ng COVID. As usual, exempted ang galing sa trabaho basta magpakita lang ng official HR designation showing duty hours. Exempted rin ang mga frontliners at iba pang officials,” Remulla said.
The governor also announced the quarantine pass requirements for malls are now suspended.

Cavite maintains ban on cockfighting
“Yehey! Puede na magliwaliw. Just present an official government or school ID showing the ages 15-65 years old. Ngunit may 3-hour limit tayong ibibigay. Mag-ingat ng husto sa paglibot. Wear a mask, face shield, frequently wash and sanitize your hands. Most importantly, continue maintaining social distancing protocols,” he said.
The number coding is also suspended, Remulla reiterated.
“ON INTERZONAL TRAVEL. Ang byahe sa ibang lalawigan ay may kanya-kanyang patakaran depende sa lugar. Please refer to the LGU’s FB page for details. Sa Cavite ay walang checkpoint maliban sa curfew,” the governor said.
The Cavite government allows videoke or karaoke singing from 5 pm to 8 pm only.
For interzonal travel, Remulla advised the residents to check the towns and municipalities’ policies that they intend to visit.
On Tuesday, Cavite recorded 86 new COVID-19 cases to tie with Quezon City for the highest number of new infections for the day.
